Dear Readers and faithful friends,

After a number of years of wonderful blogging, this blog has effectively become dormant - except for occasional updates regarding my book, MAXDOG. I have left this blog as a legacy to my dog and a place of sanctuary where we can reflect upon his life. Take your time, peruse the pages spanning Max's 18 months in cyberspace. Feel refreshed and uplifted because his story is an amazing one of..."LIVING LIFE TO THE MAX!"
My activities have now moved on to my new blog entitled "LIVING LIFE TO THE MAX". Please join me there where you can read about my family and canine companions. I also invite you to visit MAXDOG's FANPAGE on FACEBOOK. You can follow the specific links by clicking below:

May God bless you and thank you for following me!

...run for your lives!!!!!... bark! Bark! scamper!

Hey Guys. I thought I'd show you a very different breed of dog which we get here in South AFrica - it's called the

...and guys, be warned - don't take this fella on!!! He is huge and he can cause a lot of damage!

And NO, THAT'S NOT HIS TAIL!!! It's called a TRUNK! When he wags his trunk, it doesn't mean he's friendly!
Indeed, he uses his tail (I mean his trunk) to put things in his mouth which is just under his tail (I mean his TRUNK!)...oh but this creature is complicated!

Anyway Guys, did you know that this big dood listens not only with his ears, but also with his feet! Yes...he can hear things that humans can't hear, by picking up vibrations through the ground and through the air.

I must tell you, that whoever looks after this guy needs a HUGE POOP SCOOP!...but Africa always provides - and in this case, it's the Dung Beetles, who use the poop to make their nests - tiny balls which they push along the ground upside down. Hey man, its fascinating!

Anyway, this guy - the Elephant Dog - eats trees. He strips the bark and chews on it like we chew on bones. He also loves pushing the trees over to eat their roots. I think that's crazy...why doesn't he just mark them like us dogs!!!?

Well, you guys must come to visit and see some of these amazing ELEPHANT DOGS. They don't have leashes - nobody has thought to make any yet!

Take care and speak soon.
Luv mmmMAXxxx

Hello there Maxdog!

What great blog you have!

We don't think we want to get into a fight with the elephant dog. One swish of his very long nose and we'd be off flying!

Must be nice when meet elephant dog.

Licks and wags

Those elephants look very big and scary. I am so glad we only have the Loch Ness Monster (easily avoidable if you don't like swimming) here in Scotland.
But those poor dung beetles, having a bed made out of pooh!
We live in a fascinating world.
Cheers! H.
